People everywhere are starving - some for food, some for attention, and some for love. All are desperate for nourishment of their body and soul.
Each one of us has to learn to end the cycle of deprivation on our own. It is only as infants that we cannot provide for ourselves. We learn very early who will help feed us or when we must seek it on our own.
It is amazing the things we are capable of when we no longer feel lack or scarcity in our lives. We become healthy and vital, well able for the challenge of life.
